New Blip: Kloa - Child of the Forest

Kloa - Child of the Forest, from Wildpad Games, is an action adventure set in a beautiful, but dying, world. You take on the role of Kloa as she sets out to stop the mysterious Ikari Curse (no relation) that is killing the forest she calls home. Unfortunately, this curse has also transformed the critters of the forest into monstrous beasts that attack Kloa at every turn... but there are still some friendly animals that help her on her journey. Kloa uses her katana to fight enemies, a soul bow to strike from afar, and defensive techniques to protect herself from strikes and deflect projectiles, and she gains new attacks and equipment throughout her adventure. She also has a dash maneuver that allows her to avoid enemy attacks, dodge out of the way of environmental obstacles, and cross gaps. Kloa must explore multiple biomes, fight tough enemies and bosses, solve environmental puzzles, and restore balance to the land.

The game is coming to PC but it does not yet have an announced release date. Ports are also planned for Switch, PS5, and Xbox Series X.
